Quick and easy, you’ll have these pan fried lamb chops on the table in no time at all. There may not be a lot of meat on each one, but they sure are delicious. Plan accordingly per person.



1 to 2 pounds of Lamb Loin Chops
Salt and Pepper to taste


Allow lamb chops to come up to room temperature before cooking.
Add salt and pepper to both sides of the chops.
Heat a skillet to Medium heat on your stove top.
Stand the chops up, fat edge down, in the heated skillet.
Let them cook for about 2 to 3 minutes.
Lay chops down on the flat side, cook for 3 to 4 minutes.
Flip chops over, continue to cook until done.
Chops are done when internal temperature reaches 145F degrees.
Remove from skillet when done. Place on plate and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.


Lamb chops have much less meat per piece than beef steaks or pork chops. You’ll need 2 to 3 lamb chops per person, or more for larger appetites.
